Metal Finishing Control Systems
Controls has been a leader in integrated control systems for the metal finishing
industry since 1997. With over 80 systems installed in 3 countries, our systems
have evolved from chemical feed to monitoring and controlling all aspects in the
finishing department. Our unique control solutions in the area of metal
innovative control strategies, ECC Controls is able to maintain proper chemical
concentration and control even in cases where typical pH, or conductivity
sensors are not viable. Types of pretreatment chemistries include; acid/alkaline
cleaners, iron and zinc phosphates, non-phosphate conversion coatings, and
chrome and non-chrome sealers. In addition to chemical feed, our systems control
the mechanical functions of a washer to reduce energy consumption and improve
Whether it is reducing water consumption by proper control of rinse contamination, or reducing electrical energy through the use of Variable Frequency Drives, our systems will help improve your bottom line.
customers have implemented our control strategies to reduce gas consumption and
improve first pass yield through synchronization of conveyor speed and oven
temperature. ECC Controls also uses visual sensors to help you improve line
density and monitor quality to reduce labor cost.
Downtime reporting is a key component in reducing cost. Our graphical operator interface can even log production quantities versus downtime to display true cost.
Controls recognized the importance of control of the paint operation. In Liquid
paint systems, our systems control paint temperature, gun pressure settings, and
oversee air management in the paint room.
E-coat paint operations, we monitor or control paint refill, rectifiers, and
PowderTrak, is our patented system for monitoring powder paint transfer efficiency and parts tracking. For all paint systems, we can also add mil thickness logging.
As part of the system data collection, parts can be monitored as they are processed through the finishing system. Our systems use part location to implement energy saving controls such as spray pressure and oven temperature reduction. Quality assurance departments use the information to determine which parts were processed during out of specification that may require additional testing.
Our wastewater treatment controls range from simple discharge outflow and pH monitoring to fully-automatic systems that reduce labor cost. Our systems can also integrate control strategies from upstream processes to handle an upset to the wastewater treatment system and prevent a discharge violation.
